My wife stopped at the auto parts store on her way home from the the grocery store. Of course first she was ignored since she was a girl.

He then asked her what we were using it on. She told him "our Jeep". He said "oh must be a show jeep". She told him "No it is our off road vehicle".
Get this he told her "Why are you wasting your time doing this to a off road vehicle!" Oh man she was ticked. I am supprised she didn't tell him off.

She came home asking me if it is always stupid rednecks working there!!!

Ha, I always get funny looks when I'm clay barring my rig. just because your paint has scratches doesn't mean you should let it turn to crap. I'm just glad to hear of another jeeper that actually takes care of their stuff...

I too used the Maguires claybar system over the weekend. Worked awesome. Paint feels like glass. You wouldn't believe the crud it took off.

Shhh..... I don't wheel it.

Wow that paint looks amazing

Makes me feel bad I havn't washed the jeep in a few months Maybe tomorrow if I have time. It's DIRTY right now


EDIT:
Today I finished editing and uploading the camping/wheeling vids.
It's almost all wheeling in Part2.
